Since last years we heard from Lorde, at least in terms of her like, doing stuff, but it sounds like that’s about to change or it would have been about to change or it would have been changed, if not for there being some kind of coronavirus going around us that preventing her for meeting up with noted hitmaker Jack Antonoff.
As Lorde sent out an email newsletter to fans this week offering a breezy, causal update on what’s she been up to. In case she opens the message like this: Do you wear your long hair now or short now? Did you take your piercings outs? You’ll probably pleased to know that my hair is big and long again. Fun it’s like we’re all friends with Lorde.
After that, things get a little more serious. Lorde says her dog died last summer, which hit her so hard that she had difficulty making music, but in December she started working on new music more seriously, flying out to Los Angeles from time to time to work with Antonoff, but just as a thing started to take shape, the pandemic happened and it complicated their work. she said they’re communicating online instead, but it’ll take a while longer because of that.
She then goes on to say some flowery stuff about making music and how Patience can be kind of delicious activity and how our wave will crest super fucking high once this new song finally comes out. It’s a bit much, but we haven’t heard from Lorde in a while so it’s fine.
